Royal Inland Hospital (RIH Foundation) has received a new ventilator for ‘High Acuity Response Team’ (HART) following a generous donation of about $442,000. The advanced piece of device will enable medical practitioners to extend better care, when shifting patients from rural healthcare centres with this state–of-the-art equipment. Research analysts at ‘Allied Market Research’ weighing up on the growth rate, demand, opportunities, share and size and technology advancements in the ‘World Mechanical Ventilators Market’ indicate that advance Hamilton T1 device has been developed for intensive transport especially for those who need help with breathing.

Officials at the facility revealed that the device is also a boon for the RIH Emergency Department. This indicates that patient with respiratory problems can use the equipment, when it’s not in use for patient transport. Sources reveal that the mechanical ventilator was being used by high acuity response team members based in the Kamloops area since March 24, 2016. The ventilator was bought after having received a generous sum by ‘TB Vets Charitable Foundation.’

HART is popular for having a ground–based transportation team for critical patients. The team further consists of Royal Inland Hospital trained respiratory therapist as well as nurses. TB Vets has been being making winds for extending its support to medical respiratory research and development. It has been recognised for recognising respiratory therapists. Medical practitioners at RIH foundation echoed their sentiments by saying that they are thankful to TB Vets for providing a life – saving respiratory device. They said not only the community but the surrounding region will now have an access to the equipment.

In 2015, RIH had approached TB Vets Charitable Foundation to help them buy a new ventilator especially for the High Acuity Response Team programme. Their old ventilator had become obsolete and needed an urgent replacement to make sure patients with respiratory problems could be shifted safely by the team. The Hamilton T1 mechanical ventilator bought by RIH is particularly developed for transport ventilation of patients needing intensive care. Moreover, patients including both adults and infants who need help with breathing problems.
